Janie Duke - Fused Glass
Janie Duke is one of a handful of artists who specialize in an old French technique called “Pate de Verre”, or paste of glass. Janie has studied and worked in Pate de Verre for more than seven years. She is a proud member of the Visual Arts Center, sits on the Board of Charlotte County Arts and Humanities Council and is a participating member of Glass Artists Society of Seattle, WA. She considers her work representative of earth, sky and oceans. The effect she strives for is a serene, calming one for those who appreciate her art.
